sofouuk: <because Ur was in Jordan>... really?

sofouuk: <Jovanka Houska was adamant that Black wins> WK on h1, WR g1, BK h3, BN f2mate?

sofouuk: <Karpov played other good attacks against the Dragon> he sure did :-) including this masterpiece, for anyone who hasn't seen it for a while Karpov vs Korchnoi, 1974

sofouuk: <<al wazir: <RandomVisitor: 17.Ndxf7 hxg5 needs a refutation.> So does 17.Ndxf7 hxg5 18. Qxe6 hxg5.> I'm getting 17.Ndf7 hxg5 18.Qe6 Bd5 19.Bh7 Nh7 20.Qd5 Nf6 21.Nh6+ Kf8 [DIAGRAM] not dissimilar to the game but here there's no way to force queens off quickly - that ...

sofouuk: isnt 5...Nd5 is inferior due to 6.d4!, holding the threat of Nf7 in reserve? not sure what the latest engines say but I seem to remember early Fritz versions having white at well over +1.0 here
 
   Jul-24-15 Gelfand vs Ding Liren, 2015
 
sofouuk: of course if 37.g5 was wrong then 36.g4 was wrong as well - presumably white should have just sat tight n waited for black to open the position rather than weakening his kingside for no advantage. it's psychologically difficult to do this, of course, especially if you think your ...

sofouuk: well after playing around with variations most of the day i'm going to admit that i give up :) the evals seem to be biased towards white due to the material advantage, but in fact it's extremely difficult for white to develop and coordinate - black really does have a lot of play and
